KIEV, September 10. /TASS/. City hall in Odessa on Thursday refused to consider an issue of recognizing Russia as an ‘aggressor country’.

"The city hall did not include the issue in the agenda of Thursday’s session," Dumskaya newspaper said.

In the wake of this decision, the activists of the Euromaidan movement who were present in the hall started a brawl, trying to put garbage plastic bags over the heads of some of the deputies. The security guards of the Mayor’s Office had to evict the malefactors from the hall.

Odessa deputies have failed to discuss the labeling of Russia as an aggressor on previous occasions, too. Absence of deputies compelled the hall to cancel consideration of the issue at the last session.

In January 2015, Ukraine’s national parliament, the Verkhovna Rada passed a resolution ‘On Rebuffing the Russian Armed Aggression and Eliminating its Aftermaths’ where it stipulated that Russia should be recognized as an aggressor state. It also called on international organizations to make the same step.

In addition, the resolution declared the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics to be ‘terrorist organizations’.

Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed the Rada decisions as absolutely irresponsible ones and said the Ukrainian deputies were engaging in myth-building.
